The LA Times recently banned “most” letters from people who deny humans are causing global warning. It seems climate change skeptics are like racists now, and unless they are censored, their poisonous views may spread.
Most people don’t realize it, but from about 1550 to 1850 the Northern hemisphere suddenly cooled in what’s called the “Little Ice Age,” and the population of Europe froze and starved because of unpredictable growing seasons.
That was the real reason for the fur trade that opened up settlement of large swaths of America and Canada. People literally had to wrap themselves in warm animal skins so they didn’t freeze to death in their disgusting, rat-infested huts.
Thankfully, the world has since warmed, but everyone from the media to our politicians are pissing and whining that it’s getting too warm. And we have to cut down on the use of fossil fuels to save the planet.
Save it from what? I’m no scientist, but weren’t all the awesome fossil fuels formed during the Carboniferous period when global temperatures were far warmer than they are today?
If anything the U.S. should be encouraging global warming so awful states like North Dakota and Alaska can actually be usable more than four months out of the year. Plus, once we clear away all the ice and snow, who knows what riches we’ll find.
Hell, we might even find more fossil fuels.
